A walk in the (Woosamonsa) woods

Wednesday, November 16 by silvia

Are you looking for a pre- or post-Thanksgiving walk? We’ve previously shared information about the trails in Mercer County Park as well as the Trolley Line Trail, the Lawrence Hopewell Trail, the Union Transportation Trail and the section of the D&R Canal along the Delaware River. Now WWBPA board member Anne Clifton shares her experience in the Woosamonsa Ridge Preserve in Pennington.

The Woosamonsa Ridge Preserve in north Pennington is an ideal site for a quiet hike amidst fall foliage in Mercer County. Located about 17 miles (a 25-minute drive) from West Windsor, this 146-acre preserve features various types of hardwood trees, wild berry bushes, fungi, creeks with rock crossings and two wooden bridges. Fallen leaves provide a soft colorful carpet underfoot. Minnows abound in the creeks. Some reforestation is underway in the valley area of the preserve.
